By Bad Seed
Assalamualaykum wa Rahmatulahi wa Barakatuhu.
Masha'Allah beautiful and a very touching anasheedah.
Jazak'AllahuKhairan to BeMyBro who emailed me some of the translation for the nasheed.
It is to the nearest meaning and is as follows:
Life is but finite.
Life has no means of being still (forever).
Life is just like a sea that contains fish and a whale. (And it might suffices you of it)
O seeker, but what is sufficient for survival (or the luggage (food) of a traveler).
And By your life! (Metaphorically speaking) Very soon all that is in it, shall die.
(PS: By your life! Is Haram to use because its swearing by something other than Allah SWT.)
So take advantage of your time in this World, before you miss what is in it (of time).
Say good that you benefit (Gain) from (In the hereafter)
Or ornament yourself with silence.
NOTE: This life is nothing but amusement and play, (Only for a short while) Truly the here-after is our home indeed :))
....They Said Each Soul Has It's Given Date.'
'Ëveryone Shall Taste Death.... The Life Of This World Is Only The Enjoyment Of Deception.' (Quran 3:185)
Wa'Alaykum Assalaam wa Rahmatulahi wa Barakatuhu.
